Weekly Parent Email – September 30, 2022

September 30, 2022

I hope you and your family are enjoying the fall semester!

Midterms are almost upon us, and there is only one week before the mid-semester submission deadline. This deadline is October 7 at 9:00 PM MT for live courses and October 12 at 5:00 PM MT for self-paced classes.

I encourage you to have a check-in meeting with your student to see if all their previous assignments are complete. The Weekly Progress Report sent through Canvas is beneficial. If needed, please have your student sign up for office hours or email their mentors, and create a plan for submitting all work before these deadlines. We want to see your student succeed!

Our mentors and the Student Success Team are always here to help, and if I may be of support in any way, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Warmest regards,

John Tripp 

Executive Director, LAU
